Classifieds System is an application that enables your members to list items for sale/trade, monetizing your community.
How does it work?
Admin can enable TRANSACTIONS, which will allow members to buy items directly from another member via app and the advertiser receives the amount paid via account credit. If TRANSACTIONS is disabled, things has to be done manually: member needs to contact the advertiser in ways he wants (he chooses when posting the advert), make the deal, then the advertiser will set the advert as PENDING DEAL. After the payment/deal is done, advertiser sets the advert as COMPLETED. In both cases, if the advert is a SALES advert type BIDS (offers) are allowed if the admin enables the setting and if the advertiser also enables it when posting the advert.
THIS IS NOT AN UPGRADE of the old app (for IP.Board 3.4), so if you used the old app you probably still have data from the old app in your database, take a read on manual.pdf (page 2) in the zip file or request support before you install this app.
Each purchase entitles you to use Classifieds System on one Community installation.

This plugin allows you to conveniently manage (approve or ban) your validation queue from the public side, if you use Administrator validation or Email and administrator validation on new registrations. Only Admins with no restriction on ACP will be able to view/use the widget. The widget won't work in SIDEBAR due to the lack of space to display all information. It will work only on top or bottom of the page.
See how it works:
Linked Accounts allows your members to link one or more accounts then quickly switch between them. You have a full range of options about which usergroups can use the Linked Accounts system and which usergroups cannot be linked to. The POST AS feature allows the user with linked accounts to create/reply to a topic using a Linked Account. Each action is logged so you can keep a track of what linked account users do.
The Linked Accounts system could be useful for fan fiction forums, roleplaying forums, or just those of you with multiple accounts (e.g, John Doe, Administrator, Forum News).
Linked Accounts is integrated to Login system of IPS4, so to control the number of failed logins, Reset failed login count (minutes) on ACP -> Login Handlers -> Login Settings.
This version contains an upgrader, so you can keep on using accounts created on this app for IP.Board 3.4.
This plugin adds another email address field on the new member registration form for the user to confirm the email address.
On submission, if the two email fields do not match the registration will not process and the form will reappear with a message indicating those two email addresses did not match.
The remaining fields and choices will still retain previously filled in information. The user will just need to correct the email addresses and re-submit.
This DOES work with the register after posting feature. When the user enters their email address and post content and then hits save, they are taken to the usual user registration form with the email address field pre-filled with their entry. The confirm email field is beneath, and works, as expected.
This validation occurs AFTER a user submits the registration form, not via jQuery live on the form after they enter both email addresses.
Also important: Users of IPS Commerce can require purchases of items on registration, the user registration form created by Commerce for checkout purposes does NOT get this email validation form field, and likely never will (reasons...). Feel free to lobby IPS for a built-in email validation field!
Version 2 is for Invision Community 4.4 and above exclusively. Confirmed working with 4.5
For 4.3.6 and lower please use version 1.
This is a free resource, written a long while back, with the expectation that IPS would build in this feature themselves eventually.
This plugin places an online indicator next to usernames in posts and private conversations messages. You are able to specify the Font Awesome icon for both statuses, online and offline.
Avatar indicator is now supported, with a bunch of settings.
Compatible with Community Suite 4.2.4
NOT UPDATED FOR 4.3+
Member Map is an application that allows your users to put their (Exact or approx) location onto an interactive map. Member Map has a permission model so you can limit which groups can add to the map.
As an administrator you have the ability to create custom groups where your community (when allowed) can place other markers in the map, for example if they would like to post the location of an upcoming meet, exhibits, shops, etc.
If you are a developer and you store location data in your app that you'd like to show on the map, you can now do so creating a membermap/Mapmarkers extension. Instruction on how to use it is included in the auto-generated file.
